My son was using the new computer this morning and downloaded a program that blew my computer up with multiple Adware and Trojans.  I have run malwarebytes.exe and adwcleaner_4.107.exe.  These removed close to 50 items.  My computer was still dragging though, so I looked in the task manager.  My disk usage was at 100% and I had close to 15 instances of Chrome running.  I went ahead and uninstalled Chrome.  Even with a restart though, I still have multiple instances of it running. 


This leads me to believe there is still garbage on the laptop.


The Laptop is running Windows 8.1

The infection started this morning.


I have attached a copy of the FRST logs and a screenshot of my task manager.


Any help that can be provided would be greatly appreciated.
